In rememberance: Keith Aoki

Today, the legal academy lost a good friend and colleague. Keith Aoki passed away after struggling with illness. Those of us who had the privilege of working with Keith will remember him for his intelligence, wit, energy, and caring. I was lucky enough to know him as a fellow intellectual property professor, member of the Conference of Asian Pacific American Law Faculty, AALS committee member, and most of all – friend. He was an inspirational, outstanding, and special person in every way. Rest in peace, Keith.

  1. From a former student… may you rest in peace Keith! You were my favorite and most inspiring mentor. Thanks for everything.

  2. This is sad and shocking news. I am a colleague from the University of Oregon and sending messages of care and strength to Keith’s family. A fine, strong man who will be missed.

  3. Dear Keith: My shock and surprise are great, but minor compared to my gratitude for the opportunities and support you provided in my time under your guidance. Prayers and blessings.

  4. My deepest condolences to Keith’s family. I was also a former student and I hated everything about law school but Keith did offer some glimpses of hope and humor. He will be deeply missed.
